We all see how both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are very popular. They are also very good at entertaining us. But which one would you choose?
You can watch movies and tv shows on Netflix on a Mac, PC, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android, iOS, even Xbox (360, One) and PlayStation (3 and 4), Nintendo Wii U, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You can watch movies and tv shows on Amazon Prime Video on pretty much the same devices as you’d enjoy Netflix on.
Netflix comes with the same interface on different platforms. It may vary, however, depending on the type of platform. You can create multiple user profiles. There’s also a kid profile, with Parental guidance. You can search what you want to watch, and every show and movie has an automated preview – which some people find annoying. You cannot disable them.
Amazon Prime Video comes with a different interface from every device. You will get the best experience on Fire TV. On the web version, it can get annoying to look for content. You cannot create multiple user profiles. But it does come with Amazon’s X-ray, and people say that it’s the best feature so far.
